GDT Announces H.264XE Silicon IP Core

System design company Global Digital Technologies has announced a new product in the family of advanced video compression IPs, the H264XE.
H.264XE is a highly integrated silicon IP core offering H.264 video compression quality at the lowest possible bit rate. The new IP core is designed specifically for Xilinx based FPGAs and vide platforms.
H.264XE's compatibility with Xilinx's design flow ensures "plug-and-play" immersion in Xilinx's EDK platform and implementation in all modern Xilinx FPGA devices.
Gregory Doumenis, President at GDT, said: "We are very happy to provide global market with a sophisticated high performance video encoding solution optimised for Xilinx's line of products. H.264XE combines excellent compression quality together with the easiest "drop-in" immersion into Xilinx's EDK development platform.
"GDT's commitment to total customer support complements the product's technical excellence and provides our customers with complete system level solutions on Xilinx FPGAs."
Mark Jensen, Director of Industrial, Scientific and Medical Vertical Markets, said: "The ability to combine H.264 encoding with other Video IP into a Xilinx FPGA provides customers with maximum integration and flexibility while minimising time to market. The availability of GDT's H.264 IP plays a key role in the Xilinx Partner Ecosystem towards a complete video solution."
Additionally, Global Digital Technologies is launching the second generation of its H.264 encoder IP core, H.264EBH. H.264EBH is a mature encoder IP core already enabling high quality H.264 compression solution to a wide area of FPGA or ASIC implementations in the global market. The second generation of H.264EBH introduces significant performance enhancements as well as reduced resource requirements.
